    Cool new tidbits.

    Wonder why the manual transmission doesn't get TWO roller camshafts like the CVT?

    Cost tactic to keep the base car price down?

    CAFE measure to increase the CVT's rating further, which is already artificially higher than the manual's due to the testing process?

    A little digging and asking questions answered my catalytic converter acronym question:

    mcc - manifold catalytic converter
    fcc - flange catalytic converter
    ucc - under-floor catalytic converter

    I added Fummin's picture of the camshafts off of a 2017 CVT Mirage.
